    • As Contraceptives Rule Enters GOP Race, Will Reproductive Rights Affect 2012 Election?


      from Democracy Now! Added 20 0 0

      democracynow.org — Rick Santorum's three-state victory comes after a week of heavy Republican campaigning against a new Obama administration rule requiring health insurance plans, including those provided by Catholic-affiliated hospitals and universities, to offer free birth control methods. Reproductive rights groups have hailed the measure, which was fueled by research showing birth control is necessary for women’s health and well-being. The row over contraceptives comes as a top official at the breast cancer charity Komen has resigned after a controversial decision to defund Planned Parenthood backfires. We look at how reproductive rights could become major issues in the 2012 race with three guests: Michael Brendan Dougherty of Business Insider and the American Conservative; Loretta Ross of the SisterSong Reproductive Justice Collective; and Jon O’Brien of Catholics for Choice.

        from Family Planning Health Services Added 526 1 0

        The Common Good follows two young women from Catholics for Choice as they travel across Wisconsin to promote their media messages, in conjunction with Family Planning Health Services, that the Catholic faith and Plan B, the most common for of emergency contraception, are not incompatible. The two women explain how they reconciled their, seemingly at odds, beliefs as the group works to find media willing to cover the controversial message they bring to the sleepy Midwest state. Produced by Dino Corvino, Lon Newman and Sue Kettner, The Common Good was directed and shot by Associated Press Award winner Brooke Sperry and co-directed, edited and written by Emmy nominee Erik Cieslewicz.
